When Jenny and I started this site, one of our main focuses was to always keep the heart of Kansas City as our theme. We both LOVE KC. The people are awesome and the city? Well, it's just the best. Maybe you have to live here to totally 'get it'. But, it's true!
It is so easy for us to talk about our partner KC Tee because - who doesn't love a little KC flair?!
We sat down with the very sweet owner and founder of KC Tee, Wendy Brunton:
Describe KC Tee -- what's it all about?
KC Tee was designed to be a 'feel good', easy to wear, comfy, local lifestyle brand. We wanted Kansas City fans to be able to celebrate our great city year-round with our tanks, tees, hoodies and more. Our pieces blend well into your current wardrobe and are the perfect 'go to' for effortless KC style! We offer long-sleeved pocket tees in a fun selection of colors - sort of like the ones you buy at the beach every summer! Plus, off-the-shoulder designs and hoodies that work perfectly for layering. That's just to name a few!
How did you come up with the concept?
So many people go casual these days. Women want to be comfy and wear clothing that looks good, but also feels good! KC fans have so much pride, so shouldn't we have options to represent all of those things?
Women want solutions. Easy 'go to' solutions, so they can focus on the stuff that matters.
Plus, don't we need something to wear with our yoga pants?! Why not create a line that KC fans can wear year-round, not just to sporting events!
Add a KC Tee to your favorite jacket or camo hoodie! Wear our long-sleeved 'beach tee' with your favorite skinny jeans or leggings. Layer our off-the-shoulder top under a jacket this fall and throw it on after your favorite workout class to run errands.
KC Tee is all about easy-to-wear styles, fun colors and great fabrics. Plus, who doesn't love a local tee that celebrates 'Big City, Small Town Pride'?
Do you carry styles for both men and women?
Currently, we offer mostly women's styles. But, we do have unisex shirts coming in the next few weeks and plan on offering more men's options in the near future!
Do you sell any other items besides clothing?
KC Tee currently carries several other items besides clothing. We offer our locally designed KC Tee bottles in 12 different designs (more on the way!) The bottle holds up to 26 oz. of the drink of your choice. And, in case you're interested -- it will hold an entire bottle of wine! (Wine and yoga pants... right?!)
Our bottles keep drinks cold for 24 hours, hot for 12 hours and are perfect for travel, the gym, sporting events, the office, etc. We also offer KC Tee hats in a variety of colors and designs.
Obviously, you love KC! Are you from here or did you move here and fall in love with the city?
I am originally from a small town in South Central Kansas. My husband and I have lived here for almost 13 years. I love so many things about small towns - so much pride and loyalty! I love big cities too. So, Kansas City is a perfect fit for us.
We love that the KC community is so loyal and prideful about our city. Plus, there are so many great things to do here! We think our tagline 'Big City, Small Town Pride' describes KC perfectly.
Where can people find KC Tee clothing, bottles, etc.?
Right now we sell out of two local locations. Our items can be purchased inside both Evie & Georgie locations at 'Mommy Shop' (name change coming soon, FYI) in Overland Park and also at Trendz Marketplace in Leawood.
What new KC Tee items will be available for fall?
We have many NEW things coming soon! Stay posted on social media for more KC Tee items. Super excited about new logo tees and 'feel good' pieces that will be perfect for the cooler weather and help spice up your wardrobe!
Tell us about YOUR KC favorites!
